Hi, Guys,

I thought I saw a Fouling Shot article not TOO long ago about cobbling together a fix to keep the handle on an RCBS lubersizer from flopping down when you take your hand off of it.

I've looked in my Fouling Shot index and can't find anything, but the index I have only goes up to Issue #210 (June 2010).

Do any of you know the article I'm referring to?

Thanks,

Tom

The Fouling Shot #244 November-December 2016   page 244-21

The addition of Bellville (wave) washers and a longer bolt passing through the handle pivot was adjusted to give more friction and resist movement when at the fully raised position.

I fixed mine with wave washers & a longer bolt many years ago, easily solves the problem.

Tom, I have 2 RCBS lube sizers and have never had a problem like yours. Check the bar at the bottom of the linkage. It should be adjustable. There are two nuts on each rod  that keep the bar in place and plenty of thread for adjustment. Move the bar lower on the rods and the handle will go over center on the up stroke. Norm

Thanks, Guys, for all of the input. I will likely go for the simple lock washer solution.

Much appreciated,

Tom
